Judge Orders Stay in Case Involving CMPD Officer Randall Kerrick

Posted: Updated:

Randall Kerrick won’t have to testify during the discovery process for in the civil case against him… at least for now.

A judge granted the City of Charlotte and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s motion to stay part of the civil proceedings in the case against Kerrick, a CMPD officer.

The motion was ruled on this week, and will allow the criminal case to conclude before a civil trial would begin.

Kerrick was indicted by a grand jury on charges of voluntary manslaughter in the shooting death of former FAMU football player, Jonathan Ferrell.

Under the judge’s ruling, discovery will be permitted and everyone except Kerrick himself will be required to testify in discovery, if asked.

Charles Monnett, attorney for Ferrell’s family, said the judges actions change their civil proceeding going forward.

“I’ve never seen the dash cam video and the judge allowed us access to all the criminal discovery,” Monett said. “For the first time we’ll have access to the criminal discovery.”
